Drooped the ball on this one. Anywho, the latest incarnation of my band, Alligator Indian (formerly Eleven &the Falcons), have released their debut EP. It’s FREE to stream and download and happens to also be a Christmas album. But don’t worry, the songs aren’t strictly tied to the season and can be enjoyed all year round. Enjoy, and check us out on Tumblr and Twitter for all the latest news and updates.

HAPPY 2011 ASSHOLES! To start the year off right, my bros over in Yip-Yip have sent a New Year treat for us all. For the first time, they’re debuting full-song vocals which they use to make Jane’s Addiction sound cooler than they have any right to be.
Their cover of “Been Caught Stealing” gives you a taste of what’s to come in the Yip’s future. If you follow them on Twitter, you know they’e been hard at work on a new album which will feature vocals. Let’s all hope we see the release of it next year because this song has made my appetite so whettttt. If you couldn’t hear the Devo influence before, there’s no denying it now. And that’s definitely a good thing. 2011 could us some de-evolution.
Here’s the brand new music video for my band, Eleven &the Falcons. It’s a colorful and haunting tale for our song “Slowly ’66/Alligator In The Cave” from our full-length The Death Vine, available for FREE from KillerPOP Records. The clip was created by my film collective, Dead Serials. Enjoy you awesome assholes.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
After our pals TELETHON stopped in Asheville during their tour and played two shows with us (click here to see us perform at the second show), I decided to make a music video for one of their songs of their new 7″ People Eat Humans, Or Humans The Human Animal. I chose “Get A Hold On, Me” and for the video I looped and colored some footage of my friends (and bandmates) walking the Coney Island boardwalk on a particularly hazy day. Check it out. The song, by the way, is an amazing low-key psychedelic ditty involving some time-looping of it’s on, thematically at least.
New psychonautical video for “Post Acid” off the new, excellent King Of The Beach by stoner-punks Wavves. And John Norris kicks it all off! It’s like that time I met Matt Pinfield at a Paul McCartney gig.
It’s arrived! My band’s full-length debut has hit digitally from KillerPOP Records. GO HERE! to download it for free. 14 tracks, album art, and liner notes, all crafted by us (with help on the liner notes from Amber Torrealba). We worked super hard on this and it’s taken nearly a year, but it sounds amazing and we hope everyone in the world will listen to it and tell us what they think and share it with their friends and family (who presumably live on another world).
I haven’t been around much lately, but there’s good reason. I’ve been spending most of my creative energy focusing on two projects. One of those is this:
Sundae Magazine is an online magazine (duh) that my friend Brittany Middleton started a few months back. It is two issues deep now with a third coming June 1st (new issue every month). I’ve been contributing to it as a Music Historian so far and will be continuing to write for it for some stretch into the unforeseeable future. So far I’ve reviewed PLEASE KILL ME: The Oral History of Punk Rock (one of my favorite books) and The Undertones. You can check out my writings along with pieces my the aforementioned Ms. Middleton, wunderkind Jack Cusumano (who also designs every issue and draws artwork and comics throughout), Ali (my boo), and Tom “Mayor Prankster” Vinson. So get your digital read on and see me in print!
